The Movement for an Informed Society Malaysia (WADAH) is deeply concerned about the trickery and chicanery by vested interests in misinterpretations and social media attacks to create racial tensions and religious strife surrounding the preacher Dr Zakir Naik.
Prejudiced means and propaganda efforts are used to persecute and slander Dr Zakir Naik in trying to deport him back to India as per the wishes of the present hardline Indian government which is becoming more estranged and departing away form its secular and plural character as a nation.
The Movement for an Informed Society Malaysia (WADAH) fully and unequivocally supports YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir and the Malaysian Government in refusing the entry of two Israeli athletes into the country to participate in the scheduled Paralympic events.
Israelis have acted blatantly and immorally against international laws. Israel has time and again shown flagrant disregard for humanity and even basic common human decency. If we simply brush aside all these gross and continual violations of human rights and the rule of law, then what are we as a proud and moral nation?
We are saddened by the sudden death of Dr Muḥammad Muḥammad Mursī ʿĪsā al-ʿAyyāṭ, or Dr Mohamed Morsi, the first and only freely elected president of the Arab Republic of Egypt. Dr Morsi leaves behind his wife, Naglaa Ali Mahmoud, five children and three grandchildren.
We offer ta’ziah, condolences to his family, friends and supporters. May Allah shower His mercy upon him and may his soul rests among those highest and closest to his Creator.
